With Manchester United and Arsenal playing the most attractive football in the country, there are high expectations for the standard of football shown in our semi-final matches.
Paul Scholes has played down this idea though, claiming United aren’t too concerned about the match being great entertainment, rather they are focussing on getting to another Champions League final.
“I don’t know how much of a spectacle it will be,” said Scholes. “We don’t really care how good it is to watch or how much pretty football is played, as long as we get through to Rome. Winning the Champions League last year didn’t make up for 1999, it was just nice to win it. The win 10 years ago has gone, last year has gone, it doesn’t make up for anything. It was just nice to win it – and we want to win it again this year.”
